Lahore: Speakers at a seminar organised by the Islamic Lawyers Movement here strongly condemned the trials of the Jamaat e Islami leaders in Bangladesh on war crimes and said that Dhaka government was pushing the country into civil war with New Delhi’s blessing.
While deploring the apathy of the Pakistan government on this score, they said that if the Turkish President could write to the BD government to stop the injustice to the JI leaders, why the Pakistan President could not do that.
Those who addressed the seminar included Islamic Movement’s Secretary general, Ziaud Din Ansari, Secretary, Supreme Court Bar Association, Raja Javed Iqbal,
eminent writer and columnist Orya Maqbool Jan, writer Shafiqur Rahman. And PPP’s Navid Chaudhary and JI foreign wing director, Abdul Ghafaar Aziz.
Raja Javed aiqbal, in his address, underscored the need for forging unity in our ranks for making a strong call to the world community to stop the genocide in Bangladesh.
Abdul Ghaffar Aziz, in his address, said that the resignation of the War Crimes Tribunal President in itself implied that the trials were a farce meant to pave war for political genocide.
